Patristic Quote of the Day

For your sake He suffered death, that you might die to your sins.  His face endured spitting, that you might not shrink from scorn.  He drank vinegar and gall, that you might be set apart from wrath.  He received stripes in His body, that you might not fear suffering. — St. Ephraim the Syrian (cited in Today's Treasury).
